The 11th Conference on Linguistic and Intercultural Education – CLIE-2021 | Alba-Iulia, 17-18 December 2021

Topic of the Current Edition: Challenges of on-line pedagogy and research in linguistic and intercultural education

Description: CLIE-2021 aims at investigating the far-reaching implications of moving instruction and research in the online medium. In particular, public discourses that tend to politicise online learning, possibly attaching to it a stigma of being lower quality than face-to-face learning might prove disturbing and demotivating for the main actors in education and research. Indeed, technical or administrative hurdles have impeded a swift transition to fully remote teaching, learning and research (ensuring the shift to synchronous video – Zoom, MS Teams, Google Meet), the implementation of adequate measures for equitable access (reliable computers and broadband, support for students with disabilities, academic integrity assurance), foresight in terms of post-pandemic eLearning infrastructure. This year’s forum will address hands-on experiences and bring forth possible solutions.

Organiser: CIEL Centre, “1 Decembrie 1918” University of Alba Iulia

in cooperation with:

  • University of Madeira, Portugal
  • International Burch University, Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • College of Applied Studies for Preschool Teachers “Mihailo Palov” in Vrsac, Serbia
  • International Burch University, Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • University of East Sarajevo, Pale Faculty of Philosophy, Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • The Romanian Society for English and American Studies (RSEAS)
  • The European Society for the Study of English (ESSE)

Date: 17–18 December 2021
